I have no idea who came up with this, but I have to go on record to say it is, EASILY, the worst idea ever…
Trough latrines in men’s rooms.
Seriously…WHO came up with this idea?!?! Because I have to tell you…I HATE it. Look, I realize I have an issue. I can’t pee while standing next to another dude. I don’t know what that is all about. Dunno if I have an issue with another guy sizing me up. Dunno if it’s some nervous disorder. Dunno if I am worried about splashback from someone else. I dunno! All I know is…for me anyways…standing next to another guy while trying to go to the bathroom has always been an issue.
The only time it isn’t is when I am at a concert and have had a few too many beers. But even then…you would NEVER find me standing at a trough. I will wait in the toilet line that is out the door before I EVER stand between 2 other guys and go potty. Now…if it’s the seperate urinals…maybe. But even then I’m not entirely comfortable.
So when I go to an old football or basketball arena and there is a trough in the men’s room…I take note. And go BEFORE anyone else does. And if I gotta go sometime during the event? I go when no one else is gonna go. Say…in the final minute with the score tied at 85.
Does this make ME odd? Or is this something that other men find to be uncomfortable also? That I can’t answer. But until I can come up with a better idea…the men’s room trough latrine is by far the WORST…IDEA…EVER!!!
And that’s all I got…
